     176=== Spiral 3 Roadmap  ===
     177
     178  This roadmap shows the original and *current goals that apply to the GENI WiMAX projects:
     179
     180
     181  Install and bring up WiMAX base station kit, including the ASN Gateway. (GEC10, or earlier)
     182
     183  Evaluate range and thoughput of WiMAX base station kit and Linux PC with Intel WiMAX modem card and/or mobile station used for for experiments.  (GEC10, or earlier)  (GEC11)
     184
     185  Install and bring up an instance of OMF/OML. (GEC10, or earlier)  (*GEC11)
     186
     187  Operate and maintain the WiMax BS and the related GENI controller, using ORBIT Management Framework (OMF), with support for remote access by GENI users. (GEC11)
     188
     189  Present a mobility demo using WiMAX base station node, including the ASN Gateway, a Linux PC with Intel WiMAX modem card, or the dual-mode vehicular nodes, supporting both WiFi and WiMAX, required for your experiments, and a local instance of OMF/OML. (GEC10)  (*GEC11)
     190
     191  Install and bring up experiment-controlled L2 (or OpenFlow) switch, to provide enhanced connectivity from the WiMAX testbed to the GENI backbone. (GEC11)  (*GEC12)
     192
     193  Install and bring up Virtual Base Station (vBS)server, to support multiple simultaneous experiments (slicing) on the GENI WiMAX base station node. (GEC11)  (*?)
     194
     195  Present mobility and/or application demos/experiments, showing support for multiple simultaneous experiments (slicing) of the GENI WiMAX base station node, and remote access by GENI users, utilizing experiment-controlled L2 (or OpenFlow) switch, and Virtual Base Station (vBS) server. (GEC11)  (*?)
